12 oz. can from nimbleprop - thanks again! Pours a clear golden orange until the last ounce of the can comes out, dumping a ton of yeast floaters into the glass. Small white head, settling into an uneven ring and spotty film, leaving streaks and spots of lace in the glass. The sweet malt backbone is the first thing that’s apparent here, with toast, honey, caramel, pine resin, citrus, tea, and florals. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a smooth, bitter, resinous mouthfeel. Not bad, but I want to try it again super fresh. DialSquare (4962) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 4, 2016
Old note, at Hunahpu Day ’16: gold w/ off-white. aroma of pine, dank. tastes of grassy hops, caramel, pine. slick palate. Leini (2030) - SWEDEN - NOV 4, 2016
Sample at a tasting event. Hazy orange body with a medium head. Tropical fruit, pine, caramel, grapefruit. Nice attitude in this one. mcox90 (2070) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 18, 2016
12 oz.can, courtesy of DCLawyer. Thank You Sir. Poured a lovely blood orange, slightly hazed, with a 1/4" ecru head that retreated rather quickly. Not much in the way of lace. Nice, dank, earthy hop aroma. Flavor is a bit more malty than the aroma would suggest. Semi sweet, but still enough hop bitterness so you don’t forget you’re drinking a Dipa. Well balanced. Alcohol is subtle. Body is to the full side with a lingering mildly bitter aftertaste. Nice! JDBaker11058 (2133) - Maryland, USA - AUG 23, 2016
appearance: carefully poured--clear gold, a finger of creamy-to-frothy light tan-to-orange head; good lacing. aroma: blast of hops--citrus (grapefruit), pine (&resin), plus some dank, catty notes; malt is in the vein of floral honey and graham crackers. taste: syrupy-semi-sweet malts (honey and caramel) quickly overpowered by a tidal wave of dank, citrus, and tropical hops. finish: incredibly bitter, chewy palate, lingering grapefruit, pineapple, and pine. notes: Lest I incur the wrath of the commentariat, I’ll just say it wasn’t for me. Too far out of balance for my tastes. Big, complex, and well done, just wouldn’t try again. More for the rest of you! Can courtesy of Derek at Beerble study.

September 25, 2015. Can at SBWF. c1raider (135) - New York, USA - JUL 14, 2016
Cloudy orange with a small white head. Aroma is hoppy, fruity with peach, orange, pine, resin, hints of toffee and some weird glue/rubber notes. Taste is medium sweet, fruity, medium bitter. Finish is bitter with some piney notes, sweet malt and peach in the background, again some off-notes in the finish.
Medium bodied, average carbonation.
Guess I had a bad can, need to revisit.
Excellently complex yet balanced, citrus, hops, sweet malt, would buy again but space 2x IPA gives it a big run Bule (2135) - California, USA - JUL 13, 2016
12oz can pours a hazy pale brown color with a bit of head. Thick maltiness that doesn't overpower. Some tropical hop flavors. Hops and malt balance nicely.
